This stunning necklace is a brilliant replica of James Webb Space Telescope's (JWST) iconic hexagonal mirror assembly. The metal base is first designed using the latest computer aided design (CAD) technology and then fabricated via lost wax casting. Gold leaf is then handpainted on and sealed with resin to produce a miniature almost as shiny as the real thing.
Created as part of the James Webb Space Telescope Artist Event in the Fall of 2016. Stern Design Works was one of 22 artists selected nationwide to travel to NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center in Greenbelt, MD, USA to meet JWST scientists, engineers and other project personnel and see the final mirror assembly in person. This necklace is part of the capsule collection they designed as part of this experience.
Pendant measures 0.75 inches in diameter on a 17 inch chain. Handmade in Brooklyn, USA.
